Dear members of KSKJ Life,

I’m pleased for us to share with you the results of our election for our national Board of Directors.  This was our first direct election format – where every adult member had an opportunity to vote – and I am extremely encouraged by the participation of nearly 11% (over 5100 ballots).  Based on industry standards, we were told to expect half of that amount.  My personal thanks to everyone who participated.

This election process also established staggered terms for our board members.  We will be holding elections every two years moving forward for half of the board positions.  This is a good risk management practice that will promote continued stability and steadiness at the board level.

I encourage all our members to participate in this process regularly to ensure your voice is heard in the leadership selection process.

KSKJ Life remains strong and continues to thrive with the dedication and vision of our leadership.  My congratulations to our returning and newly elected board members!  We are excited to work together in the years ahead.

Fraternally,

Tony Mravle, CEO
